Service rating : Friendly customer service but unable to offer a renewal deal that even came close to previous years' subscription costs
Product : Useful content and reviews that provide a helpful reference for future buying needs and interesting features from time to time. The format is however becoming a bit repetitive and stale.

Product : It's a great magazine but I would still like to see more Linux articles. Linux is so popular now and I feel coverage in your magazine should be better. It is the main reason I did not carry on with my subscription.

Computer Shopper magazine

Computer Shopper January is out

Sick of paying too much for your smartphone? You need the January edition of Computer Shopper. This month we've reviewed 18 great-value handsets and paired them with the best-value deals, in order to help you save up to £450 on your contract

They're clever, those phone companies. They advertise the latest handset at a knock-down price, and all you have to do is pay £40 a month for the privilege. And even if £40 sounds a bit much, look at all those thousands of free minutes and gigabytes of data you get into the bargain! As you'd expect, however, all those monthly stipends add up. A brand-new iPhone 6S Plus will cost you nearly a thousand pounds over the course of a two-year contract, and if you don’t ring up and renegotiate (usually by threatening to leave) you'll end up paying that over the following two years, too.

It's far better to keep the cost down in the first place, and that's where this month's guide comes in. Even flagship phones drop rapidly in price after around 18 months on sale, so you can pick up a top-spec handset from mid-2014 for half price or better. Couple this with a cheap SIM-only contract and you'll save yourself a fortune compared to what's on the main display in Carphone Warehouse. In this month's group test we’ve pitted older flagship phones against current mid-range champions to help you get premium features for budget cash; we'll even take you through the best contract deals.

There was a statistic thrown around a few years ago that every avatar in then-massive multiplayer game Second Life had the same carbon footprint as the average Brazilian. We're not convinced how true that is, but there's no doubt that the internet, from social networks to web searches and YouTube videos, uses a great deal of power. On the other hand, digital services can also cut down on the amount of energy we use; it takes a lot less juice to send an email than a letter, for example. In our feature this month we attempt to work out whether, from an environmental point of view, the scales tip in favour of the internet or against it.
